Witness Trees

They are older than you or I

can ever be.

Older than age itself.

And because they have defied time

rooted in this place,

gripping the earth

with pithy and tenacious talons,

gazed from on high

at the scurrying malcontents

that pass for life in this place,

they are afforded a unique

perspective on the passing days,

objective, yet timeless as a stone.

They are not given to opinion.

Nor are they compelled to be right.

They fight no wars

save for the occasional struggle

against the blade.

They watch us every day

and they never

ever forget
